I used to summon them all the damn time. I even knew I didn’t always need them, but in 1999-2000 it was also simply awesome just to use abilities that were presented like that, felt like a huge deal.

But yeah nowadays I mostly just use them if I either need an emergency decoy to take a few punches for a character, or if it’s a status-based GF like Carbuncle.

I usually summon them when fighting the early game bosses (Elvorlet, Ifrit). Grinding for AP before that is a waste because you don't have that many GFs yet. I don't usually grind for AP until after the Dollet mission. Get it all done in one shot, you know?

After you get Diablos then you can just learn Card Mod/Str-J/L-Mag RF/Time Mag-RF in one go and you're ready.
Not changing this sig until the Knicks win the NBA Championship! Started 4/23/2010!

Maybe early on. Doomtrain can helpful sometimes. But otherwise, no. Limit breaks are too broken and with enough speed, even regular attacks can wreck enemies easily enough without having to cast magic.

I've only summoned GFs for Ifrit, the machine boss in the Dollet mission and once to see Eden

No.
I feel that it is much more satisfying to figure out other good strategies instead.

I might summon Shiva a few times though, just because she is hot, lol.

Shiva's hot, but she does ice? ~ overly technical summoner diaries.

:p

I'm surprised they didn't censor her in the Remaster, but censored Siren.

I guess because Shiva is wearing a plate of ice on her privates, while Siren it's literally just her blonde pubic hair.
I was wrong.

Shiva also appears less revealing thanks to her blue skin.
You don't normally think of a person as nude if (s)he is completely covered in blue, whereas Siren definitely has a more "natural" skin colour.
